    Ok today my dash says low beam right fault. Before I change the bulb is there anything I can do to make the bulbs/lights brighter. Really I only want to replace not add more stuff I know HIDS would be better.

    Also are my head light cases supposed to be cloudy was that the style of them. As at the moment my head lights look like a candle behind a dirty bit of glass.

    If they're cloudy then you can polish them...they aren't supposed to be like that.

    Osram Nightbreaker plus are very good lamps.

    Yes as above the Nightbreaker plus bulbs are really good, and many threads on polishing is plastic covers

    +1 for nightbreaker plus - they improved my 2001 C270 S203 no end - so I kept hold of them when I sold the car and have now fitted them to my s204!!

    I had plastic lenses on both my FTO and Beemer and although it takes a good couple of hours to do a proper job its def worth doing just dont get paint thinners anywhere near them. I found that out the hard way. Have a look on youtube as there are a good few decent guides on there on the besst way to do it and the best stuff to use.
